    I know he will turn it around but I am definitely in the minority around here.

    I love baseball in general and the Yankees just happen to be my favorite team since I knew what baseball was.

    He's only pitched 6 innings. I mean, I'm not really bullish on where he career his heading given the past, but it's a little rough to bury him after 6 innings this year.

    Around here, six innings is a Yankee career and more than enough to be buried alive by the fans.

    it speaks volumes that Girardi isnt even using him in key innings, he's basically relegated to mop up work. Seriously doubt he's on the postseason roster
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    It really doesn't. The team is in a tight division race and Joba hasn't pitched well, which is generally to be expected from a guy who's barely a year removed from reconstructive elbow surgery. Once he demonstrates the ability to consistently command his fastball and slider in those mop-up innings, we'll start seeing him in more high-leverage situations.

    I think Joba will turn it around but not this season. It takes time to come back 100% from TJ surgery.

    I know they had to replace Qualls, but looking at how bad his command has been when he's pitched, I just can't imagine how they thought not letting him ride out the full time down there was a good move.

    at this point, considering what his role is now and how inconsistent it may be, it's almost not been entirely fair to the player.

    I always thought Joba could come back since back in the day.......and he has..........but the Yankees were in his way.
    As of late he has been getting in his own way. Still needs to keep that ankle safe......for starters.

    You might be the first person in history to use the phrase "back in the day" to refer to a time earlier in the same year.

    Re: 2012 Joba Chamberlain Performance Thread

    How about 2008 when he pitched only 4.2 innings in August, with a 9.64 ERA.
    Then "came back" in Sep. to pitch 11.1 innings at a 2.38.
    Is that back in the day enough for Joba? How tough was the 2009 season for him?

    His 2010 season was something of a small miracle after the way he was jacked around in 2009.

    He was having a fabulous year in 2011 until the start of June and has to come back from that, which was going fine until the ankle thing. The trampoline got in his way? Or he got in his own way, whatever.
    "As of late" is not back in the day. Have to wait until next year to see if he can come back to the bullpen and be helpful to the team.

    Re: 2012 Joba Chamberlain Performance Thread

    Is he out of options?

    Seems like the best for all involved would be to send him back down to get innings and regain command and control

    It's not doing him any good sitting in the dugout

    It's been five years since he was first brought up, so they need his permission to send him to the minors.

    Had too much talent to fall off the face of the earth.........I can see him with the proper rehab and some good coaching he can be a very good reliever/ set-up man..........he's a mess right now and along with his mechanics his head is not right. Just maybe this stage is just too big for him.......

    If he wants to stay a Yankee why would he not agree to re-assignment ?

    My guess is he'll be non-tendered this offseason.

    Why? He'll get maybe $2.5M next year, and he still has a lot more upside than the fungible arms you'd replace him with.

    It wouldn't be worth it. You'd probably make 20-30 cents for any dollar you bet if that.

    I'd let him go just for the sake of not having to be remind of what could have been everytime he comes up there tossing junk.

    He didn't pitch poorly tonight. Can't blame the loss on Joba.

    Unless he enjoys playing some sort of fantasy baseball (the September edition), why would he not agree? Whenever he gets into a game, it gets put hopelessly out of range. A possible 2-run game tying 9th ends up being totally useless.

    When I went back online and saw the score go from being down 5-3 to 8-3, I only thought of one thing:

    JOBA

    Does Girardi really think that he has any usefulness in him? Or are the suits just willing to give him a million extra chances?
